The Freedom Flight Crisis Appeal

the freedom flight success

The Freedom Flight. Yesterday was an astounding success, a massive achievement, an historical life-changing moment for all involved, but most and more importantly for the dogs and cats of Barbados! – the biggest Freedom Fight in the history of the Caribbean. Ocean Acres Animal Sanctuary are so very grateful to Eastern Ontario Potcake Rescue (EOPR) for choosing to collaborate with our organisation.

29th May 2021

A day to mark in the diary, months of planning and hard work, with a dedicated and loyal group of volunteers, working endless hours day and night, 218 rescue dogs and 14 cats flew from Barbados to Canada to find their forever homes. This was not an easy task, the commitment and sentiment of everyone involved, everyone who made this happen is absolutely overwhelming – the teams, the volunteers, the donators, the fosterers, the sponsors, the adoptees and so many more…

Thank You

It was such an immense collaboration of so many wonderful, generous and kind people – Barbados and Canada, end-to-end. This post would be pages long if we thanked everyone individually, with so much appreciation we thank you ALL from the bottom of our hearts! There simply isn’t enough words to express our gratitude.

Individual praise to our direct partner ‘Eastern Ontario Potcake Rescue’ and Mark Maloney. Mark a valued supporter of Ocean Acres, he allowed us to use his private plane hanger on the day. The logistical planning this entailed would not have been possible without this space.
